Aqua Wipes - kind to newborn skin...AND the environment

Wet wipes are an essential item for parents and parents-to-be. From tackling nappy changing to cleaning messy faces, mopping up spills and wiping sticky fingers.

However, their existence is now under scrutiny due to the damage they are having on the environment and the realisation that, like so many other everyday throwaway items, they contain plastic.

According to Water UK1, the trade body representing the main water and sewerage companies in the country, wet wipes are not only responsible for a staggering 93% of blockages in UK sewers, they are also the primary component of the infamous giant obstacles known as ‘fatbergs’.

However, for parents who can’t be without their trusty packet of baby wipes by their side, there is an alternative! Aqua Wipes are the new fully biodegradable baby wipes created to be kind to the environment AND baby’s skin.

These revolutionary wipes do not use plastic-based materials and contain more than 99% purified water with an organic Aloe Vera extract formulation. Used by special care baby units, neonatal and maternity departments across the NHS and registered with the Vegan Society, Aqua Wipes are created with the environment in mind, while caring for even the most delicate newborn skin.

Dr Mark Little, Founder, Aqua Wipes commented: “When we developed Aqua Wipes we wanted to create a baby wipe that was different. By using a biodegradable fabric we knew we could minimise the amount of cleansing ingredients used every day on a baby’s skin, which in turn would reduce the chance of irritation and allergies, while also being kind to the environment. In fact, the preservative we use in Aqua Wipes is a Food Grade preservative, approved for use in foods as well as cosmetics.”

Aqua Wipes are available in the following four pack sizes:

  • Single 64-wipe pack
  • 256-wipe Value Bag (4 packs of 64 wipes)
  • 144-wipe Value Travel Pack (12 packs of 12 wipes)
  • 768-wipe Value pack (12 packs of 64 wipes)
